Nothing can contrast paddling Alaska more than a paddle on Sydney Harbour in balmy conditions under an almost Spring sun. To go from icebergs to harbour rocks and aqua waters in a week is crazy!
In today’s paddle I also came across Jonathan & Coco who, through the apparent negligence of a kayak-hirer in Balmoral who left a hull plug off their hire SOT, sank off Chinaman’s Beach and had to recover perched on rocks. If you read this guys, hope you didn’t freeze too much and that the incident didn’t put you off paddling in the future! Drop me a line if you want a decent paddle and I’ll make sure you get looked after.
And lastly, it was good to see my old friend the seal eating fish amongst the moored yachts at Balmoral Beach. Happy fishing friend!
